Swelling From An Accident?
Hello, good afternoon .. I was in a fairly bad accident. The inside of my mouth was pinched by several links. And on my lips there was a lot of blood but it was bleeding inside. Then there are also a few small lumps. And this morning after I woke up, my lips were swollen so big … is there any way to get the swelling on my lips?
Hi Rifda .. Thank you for the question given.
After the accident and also you have undergone stitches there may be swelling. The swelling that you experience is still a natural thing because of the inflammatory process. This inflammatory process causes blood vessels to dilate and this can aid in the healing process. Apart from being a result of the inflammatory process, swelling can also occur due to a hematoma. Hematoma is a collection of blood outside the blood vessels, can occur due to the rupture of an artery, vein, or capillary so that blood collects under the tissue. The part that has a hematoma will feel painful, swollen, warm, and purple in color.
To reduce swelling, what can be done is:
compress with a cold towel 1-2 times a day
Avoid squeezing or handling the exposed part
For a while you can consume soft foods and enough water daily
If after yesterday's treatment the doctor gave you anti-pain medication then you can take it and don't forget to control it in the next few days.
